    Adele explained of her lifestyle, "I’m trying to be veggie. I have to be really healthy and stuff like that. I can find another way of getting all the stuff out of meat you need. I hate that tofu stuff, though. It’s rank. Whenever I’m about to eat meat, I always see my little dog’s eyes.”

    Actress and animal activist Kristen Bell has been a vegetarian since she was 11 years old. She told the Vegetarian Times in 2010: "I had a lot of quirks as a child. One was that I didn't like to eat meat: I didn't like to chew it, didn't like the taste or smell of it, and just wasn't having any of it. I was in the minority of kids who actually loved fruits and vegetables." She added, "When I was little, I loved my dogs so much. Part of my becoming a vegetarian was that I would look at my burger, then look at my dogs, and I wasn't able to see a difference." Bell was crowned Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity in 2006 by PETA alongside singer Prince. In January 2012, the star decided to go vegan after watching the documentary "Forks Over Knives," according to Ecorazzi.

    In 2008, country singer Kellie Pickler told People Magazine that she stopped eating meat to improve her health, but changed her reasoning after discovering animal cruelty videos online. "One night I couldn't sleep and I was up just Googling random stuff and I'm like, 'Hmmm, PETA.' I saw all the videos and I just thought it was horrible. It's animal cruelty. A lot of it has to do with knowing what happens to the animals and it really bothered me and so I will not eat meat," she said. Pickler was named Sexiest Celebrity Vegetarian of 2009, alongside actor Milo Ventimiglia, by PETA. She cooked up vegetarian meals on ABC's "The Chew" in April 2014.
